Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom got a bit of a raw deal. Like the past year-ish of DC movie releases, it was kind of dead in the water because of how they announced their upcoming slate of movies. Out was the previous regime, and in was Peter Safran and James Gunn. That meant that all the movies being released in the meantime were lame ducks. The actors and characters wouldn’t be the same once James Gunn came in. Now does that mean that the movie isn’t worth watching? No, it doesn’t. You can check out our review of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom to see that.

However, with the theatrical release of the movie ending, we’ve now got news about its home video release. Starting on January 23rd, you’ll be able to digitally buy or rent the film. On March 12th, you’ll be able to own the film on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, or DVD.

The digital price for purchase (on participating digital platforms) is $24.99 or for 48-hour rental for $19.99.

If you missed out on Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom in theaters, here’s a synopsis.

Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction.
